HONORING OUR HISTORY

The History of the Quaker movement runs deep with the history of America. We look to important figures that have come before us to point us where we should work today.

SUSAN B ANTHONY

Susan Brownell Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.

FREDERICK
DOUGLASS

Frederick Douglass was an African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, gaining note for his oratory and incisive antislavery writings.

ELIZABETH CADY STANTON

Elizabeth Cady Stanton was an American suffragist, social activist, abolitionist, and leading figure of the early women's rights movement. Her Declaration of Sentiments, presented at the Seneca Falls Convention held in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York, is often credited with initiating the first organized women's rights and women's suffrage movements in the United States.

ABOUT US

A small Quaker community built a simple meetinghouse in rural western New York - and from that vantage point witnessed (and often led) reform movements that changed democracy in nineteenth century America.
